About 5000 students have been ordered to leave the Waigani campus of the University of Papua New Guinea – but a court ruling late yesterday gave a reprieve for almost a week.

University authorities did not ask if the students had anywhere to go and have not provided any fares back to their provinces, say campus staff and students.

Those without wantoks have been trying to contact their local member of Parliament for help.

Students at UPNG have been leading the national movement calling for Prime Minister Peter O’Neill to stand down and face a police investigation into corruption allegations.
